Works Effortlessly!

The ECHO Bear Cat SC3265 is forgiving, even when some things are done "wrong" (e.g., stuffing too many dried leaves in to the chute instead of letting them self-feed). It effectively chipped and shredded everything effortlessly - freshly pulled weeds, dry and wet leaves, dry and wet branches of all sizes up to 3" diameter (plus a little), and old lumber (1x1, 2x2). We talked with a local dealer who says she has sold several SC3265 ECHO Bear Cat models, and has had no complaints or returns.

How long will the chipper blades last?
Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between 5-15 hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster. Alternate dry and wet material to extend blade life. Hydraulic feed machines will have longer blade life.
What are the tractor requirements for these chippers and chipper/shredders?
The ECHO Bear Cat 4.5" chipper requires a tractor with PTO hp ranging from 15hp to 28hp. The ECHO Bear Cat 5" chippers and chipper/shredders require a tractor with PTO hp ranging from 25hp to 45hp. The ECHO Bear Cat 8" and 9" chippers require a tractor with PTO hp ranging from 35hp to 60hp.
When do I buy a chipper powered by a tractor Power Take Off (PTO) vs. an engine-driven unit?
If you own a tractor a PTO chipper is a smart economic choice.
Will the chipper fit my tractor?
The ECHO Bear Cat chippers and chipper/shredders are designed to fit all Category 1 three-point hitches. Chipper weight and tractor hp needs to be taken into consideration. All Chipper models fit Category 1 Quick Hitch.
